Arrow Need help uninstalling Adobe Shockwave Player version 10.4.1.32
I have used Secunia Personal Software Inspector ( PSI ) 2.0 to scan my PC running Windows XP SP3. It shows me that I have two Shockwave versions installed on my PC.

  1. The old Adobe Shockwave Player [install path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwOnce.dll, version 10.4.1.32] and
  2. the new Shockwave Player version 11.6.0.626 [install path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Director\SwDir.dll, version 11.6.0.626 (ActiveX)].
The old version is marked as a security threat by PSI. Therefore I want to remove it.

However, I cannot uninstall the old Adobe Shockwave Player version 10.4.1.32 using the "Add/Remove Programs" utility in the Microsoft Windows Control Panel because it is not listed.

Is there a way to remove the old version without touching the new version? Any advice appreciated.

Thank you, Phantom010.

It worked to that effect that it uninstalled all my Shockwave versions indiscriminately. I'm still happy with the result though.

It seems that there is an uninstaller for just about everything.
